Eye Bag Removal Surgery - Makes a Good Sidekick to Anti-aging

As people age, we lose muscle volume and tone as well as a certain degree of skin elasticity all over the body, including the face. This results in a weakening of different body features as well as the development of other unsightly conditions like facial wrinkles and eye bags. Perhaps the most common cause of bags under the eyes is the loss of fatty muscle tissue in the upper cheeks, just below the eyes. Fatty tissue residing below the skin can be found through the body and the face. This fatty tissue breaks down with age, and it deflates at a faster rate below the eyes than other parts of the face. This uneven deflation leaves elevated and protruding bulges of fat beneath the eyes, resulting in the appearance of eye bags. While aging can't be helped, there are ways to combat its effects and keep a younger looking face, free from bags under the eyes. Eye bag removal surgery or blepharoplasty is a procedure specifically designed to address eye bags as well as droopy eyelids, creating toned and younger looking facial features.

Eye bags surgery is a form of blepharoplasty (more specifically, lower blepharoplasty), which removes the appearance of eye bags by relocating fat and then smoothing the lined, loose, and droopy skin that is often caused by the natural aging process or normal sun damage. A successful eye bag removal London results in fresher, brighter, more toned eye area and an overall more youthful facial appearance.

Lower blepharoplasty or eye bag removal surgery typically involves the removal or relocation of fatty tissue below the surface of the skin and the loose skin under the eyes. In a typical eye bags surgery, a small incision is made below the lower eyelash line to allow the removal of excess skin and fat. This is known as the transcutaneous approach, where an external incision is made across the eyelash line so that it will be virtually invisible once fully healed. This method is ideal for those with sagging orbicularis oculi muscle (the muscle supporting the eyelid) and droopy skin under the eyes.

The second type of eye bag removal surgery is known as the transconjunctival approach, which involves making an incision inside the eyelid so that there will be virtually no signs of surgery. Here the fat packets under the eye are removed from inside of the patient's lower eyelids.
